You ain’t never seen a video like this.
Jason Michael Carroll is back and he’s back in a big way. Jason hasn’t been in the country top twenty for a few years and he knew he had to come back with a big statement. Meet Me In The Barn is going to have people talking. Watch Jason channel his inner Michael Jackson for this country classic.
Meet Me In The Barn – Jason Michael Carroll
The story of Meet Me In The Barn will be the video, but let’s focus on the song for a beat.
Jason Michael Carroll and his label parted ways after a very successful two album run. It was actually quite surprising to hear the news about the split. Things seemed to be going well. That’s how it works sometimes I guess. It wasn’t long before Jason was back and with the well-known Cracker Barrel for a new song and album.
Now they’ve teamed up again for Meet Me In The Barn. The song is about a rendezvous between a young man and young woman at a party one night. They’re out kicking up dirt and throwing down with some friends when the two decide to make their way back to the hay loft for some after hours fun. The song is a little risky and probably not for younger ears, but it’s all in fun and lust.
The song is rocking and fits right in with other country rock songs these days. There is a lot of attitude on country radio right now. There are lots of electric guitars and big drums. Meet Me In The Barn fits right in the mold and Jason’s voice fits right in with the trend as well.
Now for the video…
Jason took some hints from the Thriller video. The short film for Meet Me In The Barn is over ten minutes long and follows Jason and his buddies to the theater one night. They meet up with some girls and are invited back to party in the country with the gals. Things get a little crazy and before you know what’s happening Jason Michael Carroll is dancing the Thriller dance and turning into a werewolf.
It’s crazy, but it certainly makes you take notice.
Nobody is doing anything like this in country music right now and I think it’s great.
Meet Me In The Barn will have people talking and it’ll be nice to have a talented singer like JMM back in the news.
This is the perfect example of a song and video coming together to make something special. The song is pretty good and would probably do well on its own, but the video takes it to another level. It’s cool that artists are making videos like this. Well, I think this will lead to more extended videos. The shorter versions will do well on CMT and GACTV, but the longer versions are perfect for watching online.
Way to go, Jason.
It’s great to have you back and rocking.
